เจริญตาเจริญใจ (Delightful) in Poway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two night. The guesthouse is immaculate, in a very quiet neighborhood, with easy access to the surrounding area. The pictures do not do the guesthouse and surrounding property justice.

Moreover, the pictures can in no way convey how lovely a hostess Toy is. Toy is a delightful person and made our stay memorable. She was prompt in answering my texts and went out of her way to make sure we didn't get lost as we were arriving after dark. She also surprised us with hot breakfast both days (her khao tom was amazing). I hope my husband and I can find the opportunity to visit this property again in the near future - and maybe I can wheedle a recipe or two out of her.

Our stay was FABULOUS! We really enjoyed breakfast each morning. Very clean, great amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Toy is so gracious and always made sure our needs were met. Their guest house is a lovely oasis to relax, sit in the sun, view the beautiful gardens and coy fish pond. The extra highlights were the Christmas decorations, freshly ground coffee and awesome breakfasts!! Our family with four generations loved sharing dinner together in their guesthouse. We will definitely be back to stay with Toy, Brad, Alec and Toby!! We were spoiled and LOVED IT! Thank you and Merry Christmas.🎄💕

Peaceful, clean, private & secure guest house!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Toy & Brad's guest house! We were in town visiting our son for the first time, He had recently moved to the area. It was a very spacious, clean, comfortably furnished home and is located in a private, peaceful setting. Toy is an excellent communicator, very sweet and incredible accommodating. The best part of our stay was the delicious hot breakfast Toy made from scratch and delivered to our front porch each morning! We will definately be back to stay again. Thank you !

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Brad was a wonderful host (Toy was out of town), never bothered me but was available when needed. The property was perfect and exactly as described - well-maintained and very comfortable. I enjoyed having a nice outdoor area to sit and read or enjoy a meal and Toby was a bonus. Thank you Brad for your wonderful hospitality.
